May 2011 Meeting Happenings

First, I want to con­vey our deep­est apolo­gies for the mixup at May’s meet­ing. Scott, our Pres­i­dent, thought he had the library booked through May. Unfor­tu­nately, this was not the case. For those of you who made the trek to the alter­nate site, thank you for your good natured­ness about it.  For thouse who didn’t make it, please con­sider com­ing to our June meet­ing. We will have a pic­nic for this meet­ing, so details will follow.

On to what hap­pened at the meet­ing! Greg and Scott talked about the Spring­brook meet­ing they attended at the end of April. Greg cre­ated a won­der­ful photo essay of their trip.

Scott pur­chased 4 $25 gift cer­tifi­cates from Wolfe’s before he left to take to Spring­brook and raf­fle off. Wolfe’s gen­er­ously matched our pur­chase, so we had 8 $25 gift cer­tifi­cates to raf­fle off. We also talked about the upcom­ing N4C Con­ven­tion and went over the sched­ule. We are plan­ning to do a dry run of the tours in July or August to make sure they will run smoothly in Sep­tem­ber. August 8th is the dead­line for Con­ven­tion reservations.

We dis­cussed pos­si­ble photo themes and pro­grams for next year from the pho­tos every­one sent in. A list of themes was gen­er­ated and will be pre­sented at June’s meeting.

We had two win­ners in April’s N4C con­test! Greg Hoglund took 3rd place in the Dig­i­tal Pho­to­jour­nal­ism for his photo, “Mable takes Flight,” and John Sanders received an Hon­or­able Men­tion in Dig­i­tal Nature for his photo, “Owl.” Con­grat­u­la­tions to Greg and John!

Our last sched­uled meet­ing for the 2010–2011 year is June.  For any new peo­ple, our year runs from Sep­tem­ber to May. We have a pic­nic in June, and take the sum­mer off to travel and take more pho­tos for next year. This year though, we are host­ing the Annual N4C Con­ven­tion Sep­tem­ber 9–11, so we will pos­si­bly have reg­u­lar meet­ings through­out the sum­mer. We have a lot to do and Sep­tem­ber will be here before we know it! If you have any ques­tions, please feel free to e-mail Scott or any­one on the e-mail list.
